A wicket-taking bowler holds paramount importance for a team. Wickets not only halt the flow of runs but also limit the opposition’s scoring. In the realm of Test cricket, bowlers tend to accumulate more wickets. However, in limited-overs formats, the task of taking wickets becomes more challenging due to defensive field placements and the limited number of overs available to bowlers. The attainment of the 100-wicket milestone is a significant accomplishment for any bowler. Below is a compilation of the top 10 bowlers who took the fastest 100 wickets in the One Day International (ODI) format.
